I spent ten days working with Action Theatre in Italy. Three days of training and we dove straight into a full-on week of teaching. I had the privilege of teaching the 5-6 year olds in a production of The Three Little Pigs, and they made some great progress with their English and performance skills. It is both an honor and privilege as a teacher to use drama as a tool to expand understanding of the English language. These students transformed from quiet and shy children, communicating in Italian, to loud and confident performers communicating proudly in English. They were brilliant!
